Music
Religious Education
Modern Foreign Languages
Physical Education

Each subject is treated in the same way to give the reader

1) The principles and practice, underlying how to teach the subject area, including how to plan, teach, assess and evaluate, with 'top tips' from teachers, head teachers and inspectors;

This book will provide training and newly qualified teachers with a one-stop resource for developing their skills in teaching the core areas of the National Curriculum. The chapters adhere to the QTS Standards and to a uniform structure - non-sequential reading is possible (in fact encouraged!).
